Hear ye, hear ye! Prepare thy lance and don thy chainmail—the Renaissance Faire hath arrived in our midst.

The Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire is back and celebrating its 14th season in all its 15th- and 16th-century glory. Throughout July and August, the town of Merriwick will be abuzz with as many faeries, fire eaters, and turkey legs as our hearts desire. Though organizers are still firming up details, revelers can expect a merchant market (filled with handcrafted splendors like leather goods, perfumes, jewelry, and the like), era-appropriate pubs for those who are 21+, tons of food as well as entertainment in the form of jousting, axe throwing, and comedy sets. Just like ye olden times!

This year, the faire has expanded from three weekends to five, upping your dose of Renaissance by 60%. Moreover, this edition’s themes are manifold and fun:

  • Weekend 1: A Magical Midsummer – an enthusiastic beginning!
  • Weekend 2: Pirates’ Plunder: A High Seas Adventure – a throwback to the golden age of piracy
  • Weekend 3: Choose Your Alliance: Villain or Hero? – come dressed as your favorite hero or villain from comic books, anime, movies, sci-fi, etc. 
  • Weekend 4: Warriors of the Wild: Swords & Shields – an homage to Viking and Barbarian warriors
  • Weekend 5: Mystical Realms: A Fantastical Finale – faeries, wizards, and gnomes will be afoot!

Your own take on Renaissance attire is encouraged, so roll through donning your best bustier and elf ears. You may spot Queen Elizabeth I herself!
